COMMENT – DRAFT AMENDMENTS TO SOUTH AFRICAN MEAT SAFETY ACT

The EMS Foundation comment on amendments to the Meat Safety Act were submitted by Cullinan and Associates.

“Our client does not support the development of the game meat industry, which we assume this amendment seeks to facilitate.

Our client has recently submitted to the Department of the Environment, Forestry and Fisheries a comprehensive comment on the Draft Meat Strategy for South Africa. The essence of our client’s objection to the Draft Strategy is that the development of a game meat industry has serious risks and direct negative ramifications for public health, biodiversity, ecological restoration and animal well-being. The intensive breeding for commercial purposes of any wild fauna should be prohibited, not promoted.”
